The beauty of the Atlantic Ocean is something really special. A big thanks to @bglandscapetours for showing us this incredible beach. Join him on his tours to witness all the beauty Ireland (and some other places) have to offer.
I visited this location at Rydal in the Lake District in the morning and whilst it was good it was even better at sunset.
I'd worked out that the sun would still be casting nice night onto the lake and boathouse before disappearing behind the mountain.
What I wasn't sure of was whether the wind would die down like the morning and be still to get the reflection that makes this scene and shot.
When I arrived I truly thought I'd mucked up a chance of a nice sunset as the wind was making the water very choppy. I decided to wait as I was too late to go anywhere else and as the morning had done the wind picked up and then died down in regular intervals.
After waiting around 20 minutes the wind slowly started to die down. This continued until it was perfectly still on the lake just before the sun was due to go behind the mountain.
The colours definitely popped more at sunset than in the morning and the boathouse is more prominent.

I love creating with friends. Thank you to @daveyoberlin@ryanvox1777 for keeping me company and almost kicking my tripod over (Davey) •A special shoutout to @happydays399 for risking his life but making magic light trails with his swerving skills. •Thanks @asteryx for the location and tips!
One of those mornings you wish you had a 24-70mm to hand. This works well on the computer, just a bit squishier on InstaG. Got a plan, I’ll sell you a print of this image, top drawer, top quality print, let’s call it a cool £100M and then I’ll retire and travel the world taking pictures. How’s that sound?
